    New Research Suggests The Coronavirus May Be Far Worse Than We Thought

    It can spread as an aerosol?!?

    Chinese officials are now warning the Wuhan coronavirus may spread by aerosol transmission.

    We have known it spreads via fomites contained within mucus-based globules, spread by coughing, sneezing, etc.

    But if it also transmits from human to human via aerosol means, it’s likely FAR more contagious than previously feared.

    The Coronavirus Is A Nightmare For The Global Economy

    Trade is already being crippled. And there's no relief in sight.

    As China has now placed hundreds of millions of its citizens under quarantine, its economy is grinding to a halt.

    Workers can’t leave their homes. Factories are idle. Most (if not all) of China’s ports are no longer shipping. International flights are increasingly banned from the country.

    When the world’s #2 economy hangs up a big “CLOSED” sign, that’s going to result in a major negative impact on global trade.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) made its position clear as recently as yesterday, once again chiding countries for limiting air travel with China.

    In fact the WHO has made more statements about NOT doing things that might harm travel and trade than they have issued anything remotely useful towards helping you understand and avoid contamination.

    Let them do their thing, while you do yours.

    That leaves the big question: What to do?

    To address that, Adam and I put together the guidance below, which is based on the steps we are taking in our own lives, with our own health, with our own families, in preparation should the coronavirus outbreak arrive where we live.

    To make it easier to digest, we’ve categorized our recommendations into… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Coronavirus: What We Can Say Publicly & What We Can’t

    Why the line between the two is so important to us

    In fast-moving situations like the coronavirus outbreak, the unknowns outweigh the knowns.  Quite often the most useful and most actionable material is in the ‘unknowns.’

    This is where our super-power comes into play: sifting through vast piles of snippets and fragments and assembling them into a coherent (if still incomplete) picture.  One with actionable insights to help you make important life decisions.

    Sometimes we simply have to avoid handing weapons to our enemies.  Early, fast-changing information can (and often is) taken out of context to try to “shoot the messenger”.

    Coronavirus: The Media Says “Shoot The Messenger!”

    The media establishment empire strikes back

    Last night, Wikipedia deleted its page on Chris Martenson.

    Why?

    They declared him “non-notable” — totally ignoring his scientific publications (Nature), appearances in the mainstream media (e.g, BBC, Fox News, PBS Newshour), speaking invitations to major universities (like Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, Oxford) and government organization (the U.N., UK Houses of Parliament, US state legislatures, etc).

    This is the visible hand of the media “buzzsaw”. The messengers who are not part of the “establishment” are being shot.

    Coronavirus: ‘Nothing To See Here’ Say Markets & The Media

    Yet from what we can tell, governments are entering into panic mode

    As the Wuhan coronavirus spread worsens, the financial markets are throwing one hell of party, hitting record highs.

    Yet the world’s #2 economy, China, just hung up a big “CLOSED” sign — stocks should be tanking hard here.

    How can they shrug off the virus’ threat to global trade?

    Why The Time To Prepare For The Coronavirus Is *NOW*

    Preparing early has low downside. Preparing late could be VERY costly.

    As Chris explains, even though we’ll have a lot more clarity on the coronavirus within two weeks, why wait until then to take action? The time to make your preparations for the pandemic arriving in your community is NOW.

    Why?

    Because the downside to preparing early is very low.

    Coronavirus: How Bad Will It Get?

    Latest data shows the virus continues to spread at an exponential rate

    The official data on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest a geometric growth rate.

    Which explains why more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic.

    So how bad might things get?

    The W.H.O. Just Prioritized Money Over Human Life

    It's hard not to see this as anything but political

    Today the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) declared that the Wuhan coronavirus is indeed now a pandemic.

    Scary news, right?

    Well…not if you kept listening. The W.H.O. then proceeded to downplay the risk to public health and took pains to make it clear it doesn’t recommend placing restrictions on global trade & travel at this time.

    The sudden lack of new information coming out of China has Chris spooked.

    He walks us through the math here, showing how if the coronavirus follows its current geometric growth, over 100 million people could be infected by the end of February.
